Temuera Morrison, the actor behind Boba Fett in The Mandalorian, says he doesn’t know how the character survived the Sarlacc Pitt.
Now that Boba Fett is back in live-action thanks to The Mandalorian, many fans are wondering how on earth he survived falling into the Sarlacc Pitt in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.
The answers probably aren’t coming any time soon as actor Temuera Morrison, who also played Boba’s (clone) father Jango Fett in the Prequel Trilogy, doesn’t know either. Speaking to The New York Times, he said:
“Ah, no, I don’t. There’s quite a bit of loose ends, and I’m not one of those guys that knows too much about the actual history. The fans of Star Wars, they have better knowledge of, What’s happened? How can he still be alive? I thought he was stuck in this place? I can find out more on the internet.”
So it remains to be seen if Lucasfilm has an answer for that question and is saving it for later or if a decision hasn’t been made yet. Perhaps we will find out in The Mandalorian season three or that rumoured Boba Fett spin-off?
The Mandalorian season two sees the returning Pedro Pascal (Din Djarin), Gina Carano (Cara Dune), Carl Weathers (Greef Karga), Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon), Bill Burr (Mayfield), and Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand) joined by the likes of Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones), Katee Sackhoff (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Michael Biehn (The Terminator), Rosario Dawson (Daredevil), and WWE Superstar Sasha Banks.
The Mandalorian season two airs on Fridays on Disney+.
